Placed number one on Vevo’s Incoming Indie playlist, 'Being Honest' is an explosively melodic track with fierce vocals and a feel-good music video to back it.
Dublin-based outfit Post-Party have dropped the video for new single ‘Being Honest’, after the track featured on Spotify's New Music Friday, Breath of Fresh Éire and Hottest New Bands playlists.
'Being Honest' is an infectiously catchy track about spilling some uncomfortable snippets of honesty, with lyrics like, “I don’t like your friends / They only see the flames / They say they are changing but keep treating you the same” and “I don’t like the way / That you stare at me / When you’ve had a bit too much and find it hard to see”.
The quirky music video sees the band performing the track with interspersed visuals of a janitor saving a teenager from bullies using a badminton racquet and shuttlecock (powerful stuff!).
Formed in 2018, Post-Party consists of Keelan O’Reilly, Peter Toal, Colin Peppard and Matthew O’Reilly.
The exciting band on the rise have built up a reputation for their live performances playing in various well-known venues across Ireland and the UK.
Having played venues such as the Roisin Dubh in Galway, sold out headline shows in the capital, performed at Electric Picnic and Independence and supported the likes of Miles Kane and The Sherlocks; Post-Party are undoubtedly an act to watch in 2021.
Drawing from episodes of their formative years, Post-Party imbue their guitar pop with a honed youthful energy of catchy hooks and bouncy lyrics.
After spending the course of 2020 writing new material, the band are set to release much awaited new music in the months to come.
Bonding over a mutual passion for music and film, the band aspire to create something reflective of their own experiences of growing up. With influences consisting of Circa Waves, The Vaccines, Blossoms and Phoenix; the rising band aim to bring fun, jangly guitar pop to the masses.
